Altiris channel unchanged for now

Channel consolidation tipped to occur later down the track

Altiris' reseller channel remains unaltered for now following the completion of Symantec's $US830m acquisition of the company earlier in the month.

"Altiris products will continue to be sold through the existing Altiris channels," vice-president, Symantec, Asia Pacific and Japan, Jon Donovan, said.

"Partners that are common to both Symantec and Altiris will continue to operate business as usual. In time, as we expand the go-to-market model, Altiris products will be opened up to Symantec partners."

Symantec announced its intent to acquire Altiris in January, saying it would merge technology from Altiris into its endpoint security products. As part of the deal, Altiris will operate as a separate business unit within Symantec.

Craig Morrison will remain as channel manager for Altiris A/NZ and maintains responsibility for managing the channel partners that come under the Altiris channel partner program.

Altiris partners include Commander, Corporate Express, and Leading Solutions.
